Brand new, not working correctly

Just bought, noticed on some screens the touch screen did not work, but other screens it worked fine. Some games where you MUST use touch screen my son cannot play. Should I take it back to store? Also when I try to calibrate it, it just goes to the same 3 points over and over and over....

Re: Brand new, not working correctly

If you can, definitely take it back for a working one. the DS probably was faulty out of the factory, it happens.

sorry to say that your top screen needs completely replacing if it is doing as described!!
the bottom screen and the touch screen are seperate, jus mounted on top of each other, so if the picture works on the bottom then the bottom screen is fine just the touch screen is broken. again i think if the cables/ribbons are in correctly and it isn't responding then it will need replacing!!

DS touchscreen too sensitive/prone to favoring one side

Ok, Here is your solution then. I don't like to work on systems that have already been opened but I will help you out. it seems to me that you have a weak spot in your touch screen. I have many brand new touch screens in stock and it will take me about 30 mins to replace it. You can ship it to me with a check/money order for $25 and I will replace the screen for you. I'll test it to make sure it absolutely works 110% and I'll pay for the return shipping to you. I know you may be skiddish of getting your DS stolen from you due to scam artists and such. I assure you that this is not a scam, simply a business transaction. I am willing to take pictures of my in stock parts and give you my drivers license number if needed to prove that I am reliable. I get people on the internet all the time wanting them fixed but never ship them due to skepticism. I hope that you understand where I am comeing from and that I have not lost you with the length of this comment.

Madden 08 is unreadable with my hard drive connected

Hmm.... I encountered this once. Check the disc and check for scratches. Then, use a dry soft cloth (must not be wet at all) and rub it around the disc but don't rub the center of the disc. If this doesn't work swap the game. I mean give the Madden with the problem to EB Games or Gamestop and swap it for a brand new one. It should work fine.

Ds touch screen

Two choices. One: If your console still has a warranty, then send it in to Nintendo for repair. Two: Search Ebay or another website for replacement touch screens, and buy one. Open up the console, amd replace the faulty touch screen with the brand new touch screen. Then put the console back together.

Nintendo DS Lite Touch Screen Fades

You're going to have to send it in for repair. It sounds like it's out of warranty, which is unfortunate.
